Has anyone ever used older SR/NR hoods on these levers? Think Gum coloured hoods would look great on my saronni Red Colnago with white lettering.

Thank you all

The original Chorus levers came with white hoods, and black was introduced later. I believe the grey hoods would have been a lower level lever. Any pics?

As to your main question no you can't use the older SR/NR gum hoods on these levers the body is much bigger than the SR/NR body.
